Longhorn offensive lineman Luke Poehlmann tore his ACL against Wyoming on Saturday, becoming the second offensive lineman to get injured after Tray Allen injured his foot before the season.

Though Poehlmann was a backup offensive lineman, his injury still creates a deficit in the team's depth. Likely, freshman Trey Hopkins and sophomore Mark Buchanan will get playing time in place of the injured tackle.

Hopefully, the offensive line will stay injury-free from here on out so that Texas doesn't have a Dallas Cowboys-type situation.
